to date on this stuff. the senate is in recess now subject to a call. when the session resumes probably about the same time the ball drops we expect a vote on a bill to avert the fiscal cliff. one that has bipartisan support is how apparently washington likes to celebrate new year's eve, 2013. listen to joe biden. >> happy new year. >> happy new year. >> that, that has been happy new year, nobody here seem that's thrilled with celebrating new year's eve this he way with the light on. nor with the bill that has been crafted. selling this measure to extreme wing of both parties may be difficult. sharon brown a liberal democrat says he's a yes vote. saying it's imperfect but addresses key sticking point.

>> we need to protect american families and job creators from this looming tax hike. everyone agrees that that action is necessary. and i can rrt that we've reached an agreement on all of the tax, the tax issues. >> so, why the delay the senate vote tonight? according to senate majority leader they still have to get a price tag from congressional budget office. as to the rest of the substance of the bill here is what we know. the measure raising taxes by $600 billion over 10 years compared with policies that expire midnight monday and would delay would two months those spending cuts slashing the budgets of the pentagon and a lot of domestic programs as well. and we've got a lot of other highlights but get down into the weeds and it's virtually unfathomable especially if you've hd a bottle of champagne or two.
